Abstract

Nowadays, more attention has been taken in the teaching of STEM in Hong Kong. On the other hand, service-learning is one of the key learning pedagogy in local universities. However, service learning projects in local schools are not common, particularly in the teaching of the STEM concept. This research aims to investigate students’ learning experience in local university by making use of STEM as a vehicle for supporting service learning. We intend to measure students’ learning experience in their intellectual and civil development. Results have shown that there is a significant gain in students’ learning experience.
